The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.0
6.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Ford Econoline is built for a purpose: carrying heavy stuff and lots of people. Most readers will be better served with a minivan or a big crossover like the coming 2009 Ford Flex. The 2008 GMC Savana is a basic workhorse that is capable of getting the big, unglamorous jobs done.
